new hatched chick
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
had him.in with the other chicks and he was doing the same thing but he got in the waterer and got wet so I dried it off and put it under the heat lamp it seems to be calming down a little but it is still standing tall like it wants to use the bathroom and stumbling the other chicks that were hatched yesterday when this one hatched seem to be just fine they are walking good and eating and drinking I have dipped his beak in the water and food a couple times but he dont seem interested he just peeps and peeps
Try offering this chick some soft scrambled egg, see if you can get him to eat. If he is warm enough and with the other chicks and still peeping constantly then yeah, there maybe something else going on.
Also fix it so they can't walk into the water dish and get soaked.
